Here is my next, latest, new idea. A weekend project per week! Hang clothes on it. Clothes take 2-4 hrs. to try (hot day) and 4-6 hrs. (cooler day.) It's worth the wait and you'll be saving energy and using God's energy to dry your clothes. The bonus?! Clothes that smell sun-dried (cause they are)!!!!!! The project is
The "Green" Clothesline:
You need: some long 50 ft. strong, heavy-duty, thin survival rope. Buy at: Wal-Mart, Campers Village, Mountain Equipment Co-op, etc. I assume. You will also need some clothes pins.
Step 1: Find a place to put your clothesline. (I put mine between an eavestrough and a playhouse pole.) Be sure the pole or tree is strong! Make sure it's long. (Mine is approximately 20 feet long I would guesstimate.) Don't put it in the frontyard - who wants to see underwear hanging as they walk past?!?!
Step 2: Tie the rope up on the poles. Make sure it is high up: make it about 2-3 feet taller then you are - as you will need to use a stool anyway to hang up your clothes! For me, I can simply hang a few of them from standing on the deck or in my playhouse, and it is usually low enough in the middle.
